WHY USE CONSTANT MONITORS?
Reliable performance of esd matting and esd wrist
straps are critical for your product's integrity and reliability. Yet
hand testing and hand logging wrist straps and ESD table top performance
is a cumbersome, labor intensive, paperwork nightmare. Use of our esd
wrist strap and esd bench mat monitors continuously verifies the
effectiveness of your ESD protected workstation, simultaneously
satisfies ISO logging requirements and insures outstanding product
quality. Let's face it: Wrist straps can fail, ESD mat cords can become
detached. How much compromised product could you build before you catch
ESD constant monitors, the good, the bad and the UGLY: Now-a-days there are a variety of monitors to choose from. Many require expensive hard to find dual wire wrist straps, provide a pulsed verification a mere 10% of the time or are overseas knockoffs so cheaply made that FRAGILE should be in their part number! NOT SO with our monitors! These monitors provide 100% continuous verification, don't require special wrist straps and these American Made monitors are designed to exacting close tolerance specifications backed by the strongest warranty in the industry!
All of our constant monitors:
great with any standard wrist strap
ST SERIES MONITORS
Single Threshold. Alarm at high resistance levels only and test the most typical failure modes such as compromised skin to wrist strap contact, worn strap material or broken ground cords and connections (high resistance levels = alarm).

DT SERIES MONITORS
Dual Threshold.Test the typical failure modes such as compromised skin to wrist strap contact, worn strap material or broken ground cords and connections (high resistance levels = alarm) AND test for lost minimum resistance (IE the failure of the resistor in the wrist strap or ground cords). Loss of the wrist strap safety resistor can constitute a safety hazard for the operator (especially when working with high voltage power supplies and equipment). In addition, lost resistance can cause an immediate discharge of electrostatic potential (rather than controlled) potentially as damaging as not eliminating the charge in the first place.
ESD MONITOR ACCESSORIESBuy Online. Instructions for use. Purchase a recertification.
The DT and ST monitors are terminated with an alligator clip that can be attached to a bi-layer matting or the fastener that is mounted on a tri-layer mat. This Optional snap attachment snaps onto a standard 3/8 male mat snap for a more secure connection. Part Number GC-Mini. Cost $7.49 each. Buy Online.
The 020 and 030 units are supplied with a Velcro adhesive fastening system. This optional mounting bracket can be mechanically fastened to the underside of a bench for a more secure mounting of the ST and DT 020 and 030 Monitors.

NOTE: ESD mat monitors require matting that has a conductive inner scrim (tri-layer) or a conductive bi-layer (conductive on back side, static dissipative top surface). The following materials work well with all constant monitors: UltraComfort tri-layer vinyl, UltraTough heavy duty tri-layer vinyl, ElectraTherm heat resistant two layer rubber. NOTE: If using tri-layer static dissipative matting the unit (and ground connection from the matting) must make contact with the conductive inner layer of the esd mat. To insure this contact use either our push and cinch or mat snap kit and punch a tight hole in mat for subsequent attachment of the fastener. Many customers hardwire the bench cable to the fastener (the unit is supplied standard with an alligator attachment) or use the optional snap fastener attachment.
